Review:

..."text remains most pleasant to read and has maintained its lucent and elegant style." "Adams and Victor's book ranks first among textbooks in neurology on account of its didactics." ..."the book remarkable when compared with other similar texts." "The seventh edition of Adams and Victor's textbook remains a first-class book for residents training in neurology, but is no less valuable for senior neurologists. It is also a perfect reference for other medical specialists and psychologists. Non-neurologists will easily find answers to their questions, with an appropriate amount of detail. The cliche that everyone should purchase this book or that it belongs in any neurological library is redundant and out of tune here. One can certainly live without this book, but medical life is far more pleasant with a copy within reach."
